Knitters Tarot Tuesday Reading

Two of wands

Wands02

The card of the week is the Two of Wands.

As knitters we can be daring this week, we have power and the vision to create something that has been only an idea. Have no fear, mistakes or dropped stitches will be few. Be adventurous and enjoy yourself.

Most often, the Two of Wands card means courage and daring. It has the message of striking out on a journey or new path.

The image on the Rider-Waite deck shows us a wealthy merchant or nobleman, looking west over his territory,  gazing into the west symbolizes learning from our past. He holds the world in his hands, symbolizing power. His wooden rod is firmly planted on top of a brick wall, ensuring victory over obstacles.

The time is right to be bold and creative. If you are in a moment of doubt, this card tells you to make your move. You have the power in your hands; now is the time to find courage to use it

The Tarot is a deck of cards that originated over 500 years ago in northern Italy. Although the Tarot was first used in a game called Triumphs, it was quickly adopted as a tool for divination, and popularized by occult societies such as the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The early Tarot symbolism was deeply rooted in Medieval and Renaissance Europe.

Today, the Tarot is far and away the most popular tool for spiritual introspection in the West.

Enjoy your knitting this week!

May you needles fly as fast as dragonflies
